International Dealer Day 2018

Back to all blogs | Glazing Vision Europe | News

Glazing Vision Europe has been selling and installing products in more and more countries throughout Europe since 2012. The International Dealer Day in April 2018 was attended by dealers from all over Europe. Rooflight experts from countries like Belgium, France, Spain, Sweden, Denmark, Italy, Slovenia and Poland met at the factory in Diss.

Managing Director Joost Becking of Glazing Vision Europe: “It is great to see the sales network developing in Europe so we’re able to sell Glazing Vision products throughout Europe and offer architects service for design, engineering and installation. The highly skilled local dealers help us to offer rooflight solutions that are tailored to their specific specification, from the cold of Norway to the heat of Spain”.

There was ample time to get to know more about the new products and see how products are tested for quality. Did you know, for example, that a Sliding Box is undergoing a wind test using Rolls Royce engine driven windturbines?

In the factory we saw how the products are assembled, from the standard sizes to beautiful bespoke projects with gigantic sliding rooflights.

Are you looking for high quality minimalistic rooflights? Find your local dealer in our network.
